Turkey's PM wants EU backing for Kurdish opening

Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on EU countries to extend support to the government's democratization initiative, launched to address the Kurdish issue.

Erdogan told reporters following the inauguration ceremony of the Istanbul Congress Center, that "foreign support was necessary to suppress and overcome the problem of terrorism and other secondary problems."

Answering a question as to whether the government's midterm economic growth projections announced Wednesday, depended on future loans to be provided by IMF, Erdogan said the government was trying to stand on its own feet, and all projections were based on Turkey's own capabilities.
